Brandon Kirk Veazey

Brandon Kirk Veazey

Brandon Kirk Veazey was born on August 1, 1991 and went to meet his Lord and Savior, October 29, 2020. He was born in Raleigh, NC, and moved to Maplesville, Alabama to live with his family in middle school and eventually moved back to Raleigh.  Brandon loved sports and was an incredible quarterback. He loved outdoor activities like four-wheeling and dirt biking. He genuinely loved people and was an energetic, fun-loving individual with a smile that could light up a room. He had a huge heart for those around him. Brandon will be remembered for his trust in the Lord and as a person who was not afraid to speak his mind about his beliefs.

He was preceded in death by his grandfather, Billy Veazey of Maplesville, AL, whom he shared a very special bond with; his grandmother, Dorthey Fox of Shelby, AL, and his maternal grandmother, Hilda Jones, of Wendell NC.

Brandon leaves behind a large, loving family. He will be deeply missed by his parents, Selena and Ronny Veazey, his brother; Justin (Ashley) Ellis and their children, Kennedy and Eason; and his sister, Erika Minor. On his maternal side, he leaves behind his grandfather, Charles Jones; many aunts and uncles, Audrey (Al) McSwain, Carolyn Jones, Mary Newsome, Jennifer Lambert, and David (Kim) Jones; as well as a slew of “Jones” cousins, Josh (Jennifer), Grant (Libby), Philip (Megan), Amaret (Miguel), Chad (Jamie), Connor, and Chase as well as all of their children. On his paternal side, he leaves behind his grandmother, Charlene Richards of Plymouth, NC; his aunt, Sherry (Reid) Buckner of Maplesville, AL; Cousins, Amanda (Justin) Cleckler of Maplesville, AL, Rebecca (Brandon) Edwards of Maplesville, AL and lots of other family and friends in Alabama.

Brandon struggled for quite some time. However, his addiction could not touch the true nature of his heart. While we mourn a life cut tragically short, we rest in the comfort that Brandon is finally at peace and standing at the feet of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

A memorial service will be held Monday, November 2, 2020 at Strickland’s Funeral Home on 211 W. Third Street, Wendell, NC, 27591 @ 11am. There will also be a service in Alabama where Brandon will be laid to rest. Masks are required as recommended by the CDC guidelines during COVID-19.

We ask that in lieu of flowers, a donation would be made in Brandon’s name to Healing Transitions of Wake County who continue to fight the good fight saving lives and standing in the front lines of this battle helping people take their lives back and regain their joy and God given purpose.

    I remember Brandon as a young boy at Shotwell Church and how his smile and eyes were just beautiful lights of his sweet, sweet soul. He was most handsome, kind and polite. May He rest in Peace in the arms of Jesus. Love and prayers for Selena, Ronnie and all that love and will miss him.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I had the pleasure of meeting and spending time with Brandon when he was living in Anniston Alabama at the Center of Hope. He and my son were very close friends and shared their belief in our Lord. My heart hurts for his family.
